Ladies…, lock in Monday 1st July on your calendar for the famous Fashion Parade at the Church Hall which is part of the Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Competition. It’s got absolutely nothing to do with fishing but locals, fisherfolks, and ladies of all ages are invited to take part in the fun frivolity and fabulous fashion which is then followed by a delicious and scrumptious brunch plus some shopping of the outfits after the fashion parade. What more could a lady want!??
This annual event is an opportunity to think about something other than smelly fish and again Rainbow Beach local lady, Lynn Barrett, Manager from the Shell Tourist Information Centre will be providing the fashion, bags, shoes, hats, jewellery and commentary.
This function, which is put on by the Auxiliary of the Church of Good Shepherd is always a great day for locals and holiday visitors (including our Fishing Competition visitors) where there will be great savoury and sweet finger food, plenty of coffee and tea and of course…cake! All this for only $10 entry! Don’t forget there is a lucky door prize, raffles and much more!
Don’t be misled by the Tourist Information name as anyone who is in the know and has popped into the shop will know that Lynn and her team have a wide range of items on sale on the day or you could pop into the shop and check out 16+ size outfits, funky beach wear, elegant and smart casual wear, some tie dye or knitted jumpers all suited to our climate and lifestyle right here in Rainbow Beach. From shawls to shoes, handbags to hats, jewellery to jackets, and maxis to minis – Lyn has something for everyone.
Lynn is very talented at putting together outfits from top to toe – that suit all shapes sizes and ages -and the local ladies that will be modelling on the day are sure to bring a smile to your face as you marvel at their modelling ability and the style at which they portray the outfits.
Look forward to seeing you there!
